Helplessness Blues – Fleet Foxes

This is the newest album from the Fleet Foxes, it was released in 2011. I started to listen to this band when I put an indie playlist on shuffle on Spotify and as soon as I heard the harmonies and the calming sound of this band I immediately fell in love with them. My listening of them is just but a happy accident.

One of my favourite songs of theirs isn’t on this album but on the previous one ‘Fleet Foxes (Deluxe Edition). It is called ‘Mykonos’, this song is just so relaxing, but enough about this song lets talk about their recent album.

I love the fact that I can listen to this album what ever mood I am in. I can listen to it when I am sad, happy, angry, relaxing. It is their sound, the instruments, the vocals that just send me to a different place and make me think of different outlooks on life, whatever mood I am in. My favourite song on the album is ‘Bedouin Dress’ as there are a mixture of instruments that just complement each other and their unique sounds just go to together really well. I often imagine myself on a road-trip across the roads of America listening to their albums and my face just lights up at the thought.
